    "My work is my life, and my life is my work. I invented this assault rifle to defend my country. Today, I am proud that it has become for many synonymous with liberty."
    "It is the Germans who are responsible for the fact that I became a fabricator of arms. If not for them, I would have constructed agricultural machines. (...) If someone asks me how I can sleep at night knowing that my arms have killed millions of people, I respond that I have no problem sleeping, my conscience is clean. I constructed arms to defend my country."
    "Before attempting to create something new, it is vital to have a good appreciation of everything that already exists in this field."
    "I am still ready to shake hands with anyone who designs a better assault rifle than mine."
    "It is painful for me to see when criminal elements of all kinds fire from my weapon [...] I created this weapon primarily to safeguard our fatherland"
    "Anything that is complex is not useful and anything that is useful is simple. This has been my whole life's motto."
    "I would prefer to have invented a machine that people could use and that would help farmers with their work - for example a lawnmower."

    His grandson was a member here not long ago. Maybe he could have gave us more insight.

    Mikhail Timofevevich Kalashnikov. Born November 10, 1919.

    He was a sergeant and wounded during a tank battle. In the hospital he overheard wounded soldiers complaining about Soviet weapons. He then designed a weapon that didn't go anywhere, but the design got him noticed by the brass. He went on to design the ak 47. His son, Victor is a designer of firearms as well.

    I didn't get half way through your quote before I knew that.
